Hey, I'm reasonably familiar with blackberry devices. We had a BES server at my previous job and I picked up the setting up of devices. At my new job we don't have one though and mobile email is supplied through activesync/OWA syncing on Exchange.
My question relates to how blackberrys handle this.
I have had 4 devices through in the past 2 weeks, 3 of which came with an email setup option that allowed me to put in our outlook address and it also does calendar and contact syncing: great.
Todays device however didn't come with it. Doing a bit of reading it seems I can setup email via the vodafone site of www[dot]mobileemail[dot]vodafone[dot]com and I'll get pulled email avery 20 minutes or so. If it works then fair enough but I want to know why this phone didn't come with that configure email option. The only cofigure email option is BES activiation which I don't want. I tried using the software CD to switch to BIS incase this was the issue but that's not done anything either.
If anyone can shed some light here I'd appreciate it. I phoned vodafone but they didn't seem to know anyhting about a setup email option, but all our devices are vodafone.
